Typhoon race 2017 Lungpan


Heading over to Taiwan to do some business, F business, that is. David Cortina, Brandon, Tim and myself will join in the fray. Contest days are fri thru sunday, 10 27-29. We will do our best to shoot info along as we can. The slope used has supplied a bunch of low times (sub 30, yikes!), and preliminary forecast is really good, Im fired up! Will be interesting to see how they operate their contest.
Watch here for updates...

Good luck, make sure to double tape your stabs and make sure to raise the tray tables before landing.

Looking real good and similar to 2014.

Stay tuned, wheels up in less than a week!

Long Pan race.


See ya there guys!

Its only 350 Killer-metres down the road for me...

Anyway I'm sponsoring.

I think you'll find the comp well organized, the natives very friendly, the competition fierce, and the winds high.

Not only that, the Taiwan "18 day beer" is not a bad swig either.

By the way while we are there, if anyone needs translation, please let me know, as I speaka-da-lingo.

Looking forward to a fun few days.

Cheers,

Doc. J.

Hey Brandon - right now its looking quite weird for the competition (and ONLY the competition) time.

Normally at this time of year the Northeast winds are getting pretty powerful - lets hope!.

See ya there!

Doc.
